This week @ Harvest | May 29, 2021

It is the final week of Autumn and Saturday promises to start out frosty but warm up during the morning. Join us for some entertainment and a chance to talk to Amnesty International volunteers and celebrate 60 years of this organisation being at the forefront of human rights campaigns around the world from rallying for political prisoners to advocating for vaccine justice around the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sixty years ago, British lawyer Peter Benson was outraged when two Portuguese students were jailed for raising a toast to freedom. From his article in the Observer newspaper, which was reprinted around the world, to an international organisation today that unites people everywhere in solidarity for justice and freedom.

The local Launceston chapter together with the Launceston College group will be at Harvest on Saturday to share the stories and learn how we can make a difference. Enjoy a piece of Amnesty’s birthday cake and listen to some music Ben McKinnon followed by Hamish Pike.
